Mission Health is Now the Only NC Health System that Does Not Accept Blue Cross NC Insurance
Mission Health System’s (Mission Health) decision to remove its doctors and hospitals from the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (Blue Cross NC) network officially takes effect today, October 5, 2017. This means all Mission Health hospitals, outpatient facilities, and most physicians are now out-of-network for Blue Cross NC customers.
Mission Health is now the only North Carolina health system that does not accept Blue Cross NC insurance. Because Mission Health’s action creates an uncertain and unsettling environment for families and businesses in Western North Carolina, Blue Cross NC is taking steps to support customers during the transition.
“Even though Mission Health is no longer accepting Blue Cross NC insurance, our customers still have hundreds of options for in-network care,” said Brad Wilson, CEO of Blue Cross NC. “That’s important. While Mission is walking away, other providers are proactively working with us to make sure our customers get the care they need.”
